Rally Round a CEO

Business Meeting

Here’s a message I got today from a member whose business has been decimated by the economy. Names have been changed for privacy.

“My roundtable members . . . including the newbies, Sarah and Mike. . . have been a great resource as we work to pull my company out of the pit. Jack Newton corralled everyone a few weeks ago and we all met here . . . Lisa brought in a bunch of sandwiches . . . and they helped me strategize and think with greater clarity about the options I have. That was for a couple of hours in the middle of the week, when I’m sure they had much better things to do. It meant an awful lot, and it was extremely helpful.”

“Just thought you’d like to know that the process really works.”

This is the sort of thing VACEOs members do for each other all the time. What a powerful resource — especially in times of turmoil.
